Wetherby Arts Festival – Highlights of 2020
The Festival was cancelled but the Festival lives on
2020 is a year in the festival’s history that will not be quickly forgotten. The year of the coronavirus, Covid-19, when all plans had to be set aside. But that made us think again. How can we communicate better with our audience, how can we despite the obvious difficulties, still succeed in putting on a show. It was a different story but the important thing is that the Festival still made it’s contribution to life in Wetherby.
This year of furlough was an opportunity to develop skills in social media calling in some much needed help in this area. Now we regularly communicate on Facebook and Twitter. We send mails to an increasing audience by Mailchimp and we even have a YouTube channel. Do check them out. Special thanks go to Ellen Dutton and Katy Hewison for bringing both artistic skills and a considerably younger viewpoint to the Festival.
